The Plus Four™ podcast is hosted by NWHP co-founder Robert Birman and is devoted to exploring the sport of hickory golf. The sport is governed in the United States by the Society of Hickory Golfers (SoHG), who’s purpose is to promote the experience of golf in a manner consistent with how the ‘royal and ancient game’ was played in the hickory era (pre-1935). The SoHG has hundreds of members throughout the U.S. and abroad. Their membership is comprised of golfers who love the flavor and feel of golf with wood-shafted clubs. Together, our community shares an enthusiasm for the rich history and traditions of golf and brings those values to our events. The total number of hickory players in the world now totals more than 3,000, and the ranks are growing.
